Religion

God never intended nor desired for a single person to go to Hell. Sin caused a separation between God and man, and that Jesus’ death on the cross is the only bridge to cross from death to life. This bridge, however, is accessible by anyone at anytime.

Politics

The diversity inside the Church should be respected and supported. Open debate within the Church on certain political and social issues should be encouraged.

Views

God should be loved with hearts as well as with minds. To the best of ability everyone needs to think things through in the light of reason. This means becoming aware of different points of view, and using his or her critical thinking to make sense of God's world.

Membership

Member of American Legislative Exchange Council.
